* FanNickname: "The Possum" and "No-Show Jones." The former got a ShoutOut in "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair."
* OldShame: He recorded some rockabilly records in the fifties as "Thumper" Jones, and has openly admitted to these being an old shame.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: His 1989 single "The King Is Gone (And So Are You)" was pulled because it contained the phrase "[[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones yabba-dabba-doo]]" and thus was the subject of a lawsuit threat from Creator/HannaBarbera.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: "High-Tech Redneck" falls victim to this. Released in 1993, the song lists off the numerous ways the titular redneck employs then-state-of-the-art technology to further his hillbilly lifestyle, including watching sports on his big-screen TV with ''stereo'' sound, listening to country music via ''cassette'' (already outdated, as [=CDs=] had outstripped cassette sales by that time), and calling up his baby on his ''cellular phone''.
